What's The Difference Between Paint Pigment And Pigments?

Pigments and physique pigments are special solids dispersed in paints that give coatings certain properties. These properties include color, covering power, durability, mechanical strength and corrosion resistance of metal substrates.


Among them, pigments mainly provide color and covering power for binders, but also need to meet other requirements such as mechanical strength and anti-corrosion. Pigments can be divided into inorganic pigments and organic pigments.


Inorganic pigments are mainly used in the formulation of coatings, while organic pigments are mostly used in decorative coatings. Physical pigments are mostly white powder and have no practical function (coloring power or covering power), but they can increase the thickness of paint film, improve the durability of paint film and reduce costs. Force is the inherent property of pigments, which is related to the structure and composition of pigments.


The crystalline morphology, particle size and shape of pigments have great influence on the gloss of paint film, the stability of pigments during storage and the wettability of the base pigments on the surface of pigments. In the paint industry, the method of grinding or high speed dispersion is usually used to make pigments evenly dispersed in the paint system and keep them in suspension or suspension. Pigment is a very important auxiliary material for coatings.
